    I am investigating on the best probe to collect metrics at the hardware layer. Our company wants to detect hardware failures but not sure which probe is best for this. My first that thought is snmpcollector probe but not sure. any recommendations?

    Either snmpget or snmpcolector.

     

    snmpget (SNMP Get) - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation

    snmpcollector (SNMP Data Monitoring) - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    Check out the below web site for support devices for SNMPC:

    UIM SNMP Device Support 

     

    also, check with the hardware vendor to understand what metrics are available and how that information can be collected.
